Supirocin inhibits protein synthesis of the bacteria by binding to isoleucyl transfer ribonucleic acid (RNA)-synthetase. It has bacteriostatic properties at Min inhibitory concentrations and bactericidal properties at the higher concentrations.
Supirocin is not suitable for ophthalmic or intra-nasal use. When Supirocin ointment is used on the face, care should be taken to avoid the eyes. In common with other polyethylene-based ointments, this drug should be used with caution if there is evidence of moderate or severe renal impairment. As with other antibacterial products, prolonged use may result in overgrowth of nonsusceptible organisms, including fung.
Chloramphenicol may interfere with the antibacterial action of mupirocin in RNA synthesis.
Use in Pregnancy: Because animal studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.
Use in lactation: It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Supirocin ointment is administered to a nursing woman.
This drug is contraindicated in individuals with a history of sensitivity reactions to Supirocin or any of the components of the preparation.
Pediatric Use: The safety and effectiveness of Supirocin ointment have been established in the age range of 2 months to 16 years. Use of the ointment in these age groups is supported by evidence from adequate and well-controlled studies of Supirocin in impetigo in pediatric patients.
